Bioelectrodes were prepared by encapsulating bacteria in a silica hydrogel, in the pores of graphite felt, which acts as a conductive network in the material. We observed the conversion of glucose into metabolites that could diffuse into the mesopores of the silica network and be oxidised at the graphite surface.
